THV Loses Morning Co-Host; Temp Co-host Named

Source: KTHV Long-time Today’s THV anchor Robyn Richardson says she will leave television in order to better tend to her young family. Richardson describes her decision to say goodbye to her broadcast friends and many faithful viewers as extremely difficult, one she debated for several months.

“As a mother, I know it’s important to find out what kind of world you and your children will face each day once you walk out that door, and I thank you for watching ‘Today’s THV This Morning’ and letting B.J., Tom and myself prepare you for that. But, also as a mom, I know I am missing out on sharing a morning routine with my own family. Olivia, Lowery, Parker, and Kamille have been very patient in sharing their mother with the people of Arkansas, and now it is time that I share more of my time and myself with them,” says Richardson.


The THV morning family will grow too, as popular mainstays B.J. Sams and Tom Brannon welcome a familiar face. Alyson Courtney will step in for Richardson while long-term plans for “Today’s THV This Morning” are developed. “Alyson is a most accomplished journalist and talent, no stranger to our morning viewers,” said Audas. “When we learned of Robyn’s need to stay with her family, I asked B.J. and Tom about a new partner. ‘Alyson Courtney,’ each said without hesitation. I believe we all agree, but we’ll use this as an opportunity to make sure we continue to deliver Arkansas’ number one morning newscast to viewers.”

Way to go Robyn. Her head is in the right place. As a former THV employee, I had the pleasure of seeing Robyn each morning, always a smile and a hi back to me. She will be missed. I'm proud to know her and to have been a co-worker. She'll be a great Mom.

This is like the Chicago Bulls losing Micheal Jordan. More viewers will be turning to KATV and KARK to check things out, so, expect everyone to produce their best quality work over the next year or so. Exciting stuff

Atleast they replaced her with someone who wears as much make up and big hair as Robyn.

KLRT, when you grow up and become a major player in this market, only then will your opinion matter. When you get a track record of success like 4, 7 and 11 have had, whether it's AM, PM, recent or past, then will you have the right to say "you ain't seen nothing yet" until then shut your traps, get a life and better yet get some ratings.

Carry on.

No affiliation w/ KLRT here. You have to give them credit for putting together a credible product, one that does compete with 4,7,11.

A venture in the AM by KLRT would eventually impact the market.

It would actually be a good time for klrt to do a morning cast. Changes at thv, bland morning shows at 7 and 4. But remember, viewers watch people they like, hence the success at 11. Like them personally or not, they all have distinct personalities. That's what you want/need, especially in the morning.

Let's look at the report card on ol' THV in the last eight months:

Release popular main male anchor Andy Pearson

Lose two reporters who are replaced with one free-lance reporter who will work three days a week.

Establish all-female evening news team that dives in ratings in all-important May ratings (July should be coming in any day)

Lose Regis and Kelley by mistake and replace with lame programming

Lose Robin Richardson

Reduce role of BJ Sams who plans exit in near-future.

Fail to retain Anne Jansen who will retire in coming months. Dawn Scott will replace Jansen in six-figure salary, part-time role.

Take another reporter off the street with Allison Courtney

Pay employees a half paycheck under the guise of changing payroll procedure.

Lose news director Mark Raines

Replace Raines with half-baked scheme of two executive producers (who hate each other)



Anyone else see major problems on Izard Street? Funny thing is, they think everything is just fine. Some things on Izard just never change.

I'm wondering if Robyn is really leaving to spend more time with her family or if it has something to do with Mark Raines leaving and all the other changes around there. She could really just be tired of missing out on mornings with her own kids; I totally understand that. She certainly doesn't need the money and hasn't for years. Just wondering if there's more to the story.

I will miss Robyn, but I am not going to turn the channel. I love Tom Brannon and BJ. As long as they are on, I will still watch. I don't care who they put with them. I have watched them for years and they are like my family, with or without Robyn. Sorry 7 &4 for thinking otherwise. If you want me to turn the channel, then you'll have to make Tom and BJ leave too.

Okay. I may be talking about something you are ignorant (by definition) of but KLRT was the first high-power UHF station in this market. They have always been UHF and that is something KARK, KATV, and KTHV are now having to deal with (if transmitters are off air, the best programming in the country will not be seen). Do you understand that? Next, KLRT was the frist to master the switching between hi-def, network programs and local cut-ins (commercials). KLRT has had less down time with their UHF/Digital transmitter than any of the other three. I am probably talking about something that you don't think is important (you think that talent is the thing) but like I stated earlier, if it ain't on the air, it ain't gonna sell. Do you need any more education on this subject?

Assuming a $400,000 per month payroll (I think that assumption is high), the float on that money would have saved the company $13.70 per day at 5% (again a high estimate). It cost them much more to fix the problem.
Don't get me wrong. I'm not defending Larry the Office Rat. But they didn't do it for the money but possibly for budgetary reasons.

Beleive it or not it wasn't Larry -this time. He was actually against the move as was human resources and THV's money man - it was the bean counters at Gannett. THV was one of a few stations owned by Gannett whose payroll was based on payment that wasn't done based on what had been done the previous two weeks, however it was a deal made when Gannett bought THV back in '96.Once agin it was the employees that got it in the "rear" if you know what I mean. The counters said "since it was considered and EXTRA check" they though it was the best time to change payroll. However, most question the legality of the move. A lot of folks wanted to challenge the move by retaining leagal council. However, Gannett corporate has a retainer on most of the good law firms in Little Rock that will fight for the little guy. Anyone out there know if this move is legitimate or did the employees get royally SCREWED?

i see it like this: when first starting as an employee @ thv, i got paid for 80 hours on my first paycheck, although i only worked 40. that started a payment schedule of getting paid 40 hours ahead of time on every paycheck after that.

the really f**kd up thing is, i make a lot more money now, so it affects me a whole lot more than it would've back then.

THAT'S WHY IT IS WRONG!!!!!!!! wait till everyone gets raises and makes more money, so when gannett takes that 40 hours back, they save a lot more money!!!!!!!

i wish we could bring this up in a lawsuit, then maybe we would have a case.


what gannett did was take out that week of advanced payment that had trailed me since that first paycheck, and say everything is caught up now.

I CALL BULL S**T!!!!!

being a UHF station in a market full of VHF stations is not a plus. Fact of the matter is VHF stations have always faired better the UHF head to head. VHF signals were always easier to get and clearer the UHF. Cable changed that, to some extent,.

1. In February 2009, all television stations in the LR area (with the exception of KETS) will be UHF except KTHV-DT which will still be stuck in the upper VHF spectrum.
2. VHF analog signals are not clearer than UHF signals due to the fact that the stations on the lower end of the spectrum are prone to random noises such as auto ignition, household electrical pulses, etc.

If you arent' aware of the LR stations' frequency assignments here they are:

KTHV-DT is Channel 12.1, 12.2 VHF
KATV-DT is Channel 22.1, 22.2 UHF
KVTN-DT is Channel 25 UHF
KLRT-DT is Channel 30 UHF
KARK-DT is Channel 32 UHF
KASN-DT is Channel 38.1, 38.2 UHF
KWBF-DT is Channel 42.1, 42.2 UHF
KYPX-DT is Channel 49 UHF

These stations are currently transmitting a digital signal on these channels. The difference between VHF analog picture resolution (quality) and UHF digital resolution is like night and day. With UHF digital, you either have it, or you don't. No noise (snow). The digital signal will also allow the stations to transmit high definition programming like analog could never do. After the 2009 date, the VHF analog antennae will be scrap iron.

Look, Robyn Richardson doesn't have a stinking thing to worry about. Her husband makes a darn good living. More than enough to support him, her, and their children.

What I hope KTHV does is get someone in their who has come credibility. Someone who doesn't come across like a children's Sunday school teacher.

Also, and this is sad but true, the person who gets the position has to have 'the look'. Please KTHV, don't just stick someone on there just because Sams and Brannon have some familiarity with the individual. Please make sure that the person can meet the qualifications.

Also, make sure she doesn't have kids. Nothing irks me more than when broadcasters start yapping about their kids. I didn't like it when Kathie Lee Gifford did it, and I hate it even more when local broadcasters do it!

If you have to, do what that small station in Texas did in order to boost its ratings.

Here's the problem for KTHV and for all the Little Rock stations for that matter; anchor changes can be expensive as they typically make for racial discrimination lawsuits. Just ask Pard.

Why do you think 11 put an African American into the noon show? This is why Barbara Roberts will not be coming to the morning show at THV anytime soon. Arkansas viewers--or maybe it's just Arkansas TV general managers (Chuck Spohn not included) like their anchor teams lily white.

She was NOT a good anchor, otherwise, she would still be at KARK. KARK would not have promoted Melissa, and they would not have gone with a new morning show to COMPETE with THV.

UHF TV takes lots of power made by overgrown transmitters that can't take a power bump without going off the air. ALL tv stations in this market except one, have at least one UHF transmitter. Being UHF simply means the light bill is expensive. The higher your channel, the more power you have to make to reach out the same distance. The more power you have to make, the harder it is to keep your transmitter cool. If a water pump goes out, KLRT's transmitter goes off. It happened. They were off for DAYS. If the electricity goes off, the transmitter takes a long time to come back up. And if Entergy lets us down and we have no electricity, do any stations have enough generators to run their studio, transmitters (analog and digital), and RADAR? The answer is yes. KTHV
KTHV was first with full power DTV. 55KW DTV out of the antenna. Full legal power. Look for us. We are there. Always.
Vhf vs uhf arguments are irrelevant if you can't make TV.
See ya after the storms. No, I made a mistake. We won't see you when the power goes out. You will see us though. On crisp and clear VHF and for now on channel 11 and 12. Any other lies or myths I need to set you straight on?

Or, does KTHV feel as though they have to milk this with 'Best of' moments in an effort to get ratings, and get people all emotional with 'please don't go' calls, letters, and e-mails?

"Any other lies or myths I need to set you straight on?"

Why don't you try and explain why your station has the worst studio lighting in the market coupled with the worst audio level control.

I would suggest that you find a receiver that will show you what your OTA (off the air) digital signal looks like and compare KARK-DT and KLRT-DT's resolution to your station's and "See The Difference."

You see, while your station elects to use the THV-2 channel, it is sapping bandwith and degrades your main channel's resolution. KATV-DT suffers from the same thing along with their setup being low.

And the Entergy thing. It is possible for your station to provide its own high voltage for those Klystrons and save money in the long run.

Who is in charge of your technical thingys there? The comments appear to be written by a female.

The studio lighting is indeed TERRIBLE at THV. Their anchors look orange and older under those lights.

By the way, the contracts at 11 require you to give 60 days notice if you are leaving under contract, so that is why they haven't just shown Robin the door.

Robyn was going to leave Septemeber 7th. Larry wanted her to stay until the end of November. She said no. Although there may be a farewell clip or two, Larry doesn't want to make a big deal of it because he has never thought that much of the Morning show and still doesn't. His thinking is that 5, 6 and 10 are the most important newscasts of the day. He'd rather save money, see the rest of the folks go and put in a paid program for two-hours, or even run Positively Arkansas re-runs.

without her. There's just a quality about her that I think most people can relate to. Let's face it, her getting up early in the mornings and working and taking care of her kids when she gets home, I'm sure has taken its toll on her. She never let it show and quite frankly, I was inspired in the mornings when I would turn on the t.v. and there she was with hair and makeup done and I'm standing there with my hair standing on end and still in my pajamas. I wish her the best of luck and I will continue to be a faithful watcher, but I can't guarantee that I won't turn the t.v. off when I see someone else sitting there, instead of Robyn, until I get used to the new girl.
Good Luck and enjoy your hectic mornings trying to get everybody fed and out the door in time!!!!
Take Care Robyn.

Robyn will be fine - 3 nannies, 2 housekeepers and her mom. (I guess that's the quality you speak of?)Well, only about 1% of the viewing audience can relate. The other 99% actually have to get up, get their kids ready for school, feed them breakfast and get themselves ready for work. (the Real World) Here's Robyn's World in a nutshell:
Get up, Shower, Go to Work for three hours (not anymore) take a nap, go shopping. Now, if you remove (go to work) you have Robyn. Happy retirement.

Many of us still miss Robyn Richardson very much. The special chemistry and bond that Robyn,B.J. and Tom shared was truly genuine. The three of them had great admiration and respect for each other. They really were like a family. I know this for a fact as I have known them for many years. For those who wish to criticize Robyn because she has a wonderful life, don't assume that everything has just been handed to her. She worked very hard to get to where she is today. She also knew hardships at times while growing up. She comes from a wonderful hard working family and God has blessed her greatly. I have known her since she was a small child and believe me she counts her blessings everyday. Whether someone is a janitor or the CEO of a major corporation, she treats everyone withthe same dignity and respect. So God bless her for putting her family first!! Some of you critics seem to be a bit envious. SHAME ON YOU!! Act like adults!!!

This won't actually have success, I think so.
